I read many articles that tell me I need to set values for the following registry key to make pdf search work in Sharepoint Foundation

 \\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office Server\14.0\Search\Setup\ContentIndexCommon\Filters\Extension

The problem is that there is no key that says "office server", there's only one that says "office". I find the 14 key under "office", but there is no "search" key under 14

That key is for SharePoint Server. Since you want to enable it on SharePoint Foundation you will use this key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\14.0\Search\Setup\ContentIndexCommon\Filters\Extension\

All the details to configure it to work with SharePoint Foundation can be found here

Thank you very much. I read three articles that all claimed they pertained to both server and foundation but it seems they all mistakenly only gave the server keys and did not list foundation ones.
